I think it depends what you're looking to study? I've used several online learning sites for Project Management and it's been great. Lots of interactive webinars and lessons that don't make it feel so 'remote'.
A colleague of mine is currently getting her degree through the OU and she seems to be doing well although she says sometimes it's hard to get help if you're not 'strong willed' in the classes that you do need to attend.
I studied 2 science degrees with the OU and it was great. It does take time and specially will to get onto things and chase your tutor when you get stuck, all said, exams are presential so you still have to go somewhere for that.
Would I go back? Yes, I'm actually thinking thinking of picking up another series of courses.
I'd doubt it... but i'd check their credentials and maybe check with the independent learning authority (or distance learning authority) to see if they're registered and the last report on the organisation. The reports' a bit like ofstead but for distance learning schemes.
I completed Philosophy of Religion through the University of Oxford online. The tutors were amazing and had great feed back. Plus the way they do it is similar to how they do it at Uni Ox. You are always on a forum mulling ideas over and talking about what you are doing with all other students. i found this very helpful and motivating.
I used Oxford learning. Got the qualification I was after but the feedback and help wasn't very good. I submitted an essay each month and they, no matter what, come back and said 'yes thats fine' and thats about it.
